Get ready for a night of hilarity as The Māori Sidesteps turn some of your favourite songs on their head in a mix of satirical skits and crooning goodness.
The newest and hottest Māori showband on the entertainment scene is fresh from a successful web-series, where one of their music videos has amassed over one million views. Festival folk up and down the country have been raving! The Māori Sidesteps relives the glory days of the Howard Morrison Quartet and Prince Tui Teka but deliver a fresh take on some of those old familiar party tunes. They put their own political spin on well-known songs, and entertain crowds with soulful harmonies and stand-up comedy.
Starring some of New Zealand’s best entertainers, Jamie McCaskill (Shortland Street, Takes a Village), Cohen Holloway (Hunt for the Wilderpeople, Thor Ragnarok, Find Me A Maori Bride), Jerome Leota (Naked Samoans), Regan Taylor (Mahana), and Erroll Anderson (Ghost in the Shell).
“An entertaining, belly laughing, poignant, thought-provoking, serenading, sing-a-longy night.”
These “hard-case Māori fullas” will give you and your mates the best night out!
What we have with The Māori Sidesteps is an entertaining show with intelligent commentary delivered stylistically. THEATREVIEW

The Festival simply would not be possible without the support of so many generous sponsors, funders, patrons and supporters. It takes a huge amount of energy and money to plan and deliver a festival of this scale and we are truly grateful to all of those who have seen the value of what we do and helped make it all possible.
